DRIVING THE HUMAN
21 Visions for Eco-social Renewal.
Driving the Human presents 21 Visions for Eco-social Renewal, advancing proposals for some of the most pressing issues of our time. Hosted by Forecast at radialsystem in Berlin, this three-day festival is host to a varied array of formats, inviting the audience to discover immersive experiences and interactive installations; focused readings and embodied knowledge; riveting screenings and stimulating performances.
Participants include all the authors of the 21 concepts, as well as a variety of international experts that will propose in-depth explorations of the multiple narratives and approaches brought together on this occasion. From AI to biomaterials, and from circular economy to social anthropology, the invited experts will offer unexpected, enriching perspectives on the main themes of the festival. Additionally, three projects from Future Architecture Platform will present their research as part of the program.
For those who cannot join us in Berlin, Driving the Human: 21 Visions for Eco-social Renewal also proposes a digital broadcast over the course of the three days.
21 Visions for Eco-social Renewal
Ranging from a variety of geographic and cultural backgrounds, Driving the Human’s chosen 21 concepts suggest innovative and prescient ways to deal with some of the most pressing questions of our present moment. Exploring entanglements between technology and nature, artificial intelligence, circular economy, new modes of production, indigenous knowledges and approaches, and more-than-human perspectives from the bacterial to the interplanetary, they reinforce perspectives where collaboration and interdependency become essential, determining factors for life and survival on our planet.
Driving the Human is a catalyst for experimentation, shaping sustainable and collective futures that combine science, technology, and the arts in a transdisciplinary and collaborative approach. From 2020 to 2023, the scientific and artistic collaboration Driving the Human develops and produces seven tangible prototypes responding to complex contemporary scenarios. The project is jointly led by four partner institutions – acatech – National Academy of Science and Engineering, Forecast, the Karlsruhe University of Arts and Design and ZKM | Center for Art and Media Karlsruhe – and relies on the expert knowledge and skills of their combined networks. Together, these partners will work to enrich the various developments and outcomes of the initiative.
